Upcoming Webinar

It might be a while before many of us get to visit our favorite southern latitudes, so in the mean time, join us on a journey to look at how some of our collaborators are using i-Tree to help communities and managers inform their tropical forestry initiatives and urban green space planning. We will hear an overview about three different projects in Puerto Rico, exploring ideas about how understanding forest health and tree canopy benefits can have a meaningful impact on community resilience, hurricane recovery, and how using these tools can strengthen connections that foster stewardship across the landscape.

On Thursday, May 21, 2020, 1pm EDT, we will hear from Elvia J. Meléndez-Ackerman, Professor of Environmental Science at the University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras; Sofia Olivero-Lora, a biologist and tropical forester with the US EPA; and Christopher Nytch, an ecologist and educator with the Friends of El Yunque (National Forest) Foundation. They’ll bring us their perspective on using i-Tree to achieve their project goals, and share with us a bit of what it’s like to do this kind of work in a tropical environment.

The webinar is free, and registration information can be found here.
